Help needed please with rear brakes.

Hey guys, just got done putting the raer in, getting ready to put the brakes on (drums) but! I'm missing several parts it seems.

I have the following.
new Bendix shoes
new Carlson hardware kit
new BrakeWare wheel cylinders
star adjusters, braided cable for?, cable guides.

I'm missing some brackets from what it looks like, does anyone have a writeup/pictures or something similar that I can look at for referencing?

I also remembered (after I filled the rear end up) that I didn't pack my wheel bearings, they seemed to have grease on them from the factory though. Uh oh, no way in hell am I taking everything apart right now.

Much thanks.

Re: Help needed please with rear brakes.

just turn the rear over by hand for a little bit before you put a load on it to let the gear oil get in them and you should be set. here ya go:

A picture would be better but I dont have one off hand, though I bet somebody on here does [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Re: Help needed please with rear brakes.

Thanks a ton man.



My Haynes and Chilton don't have squat for illustrations.

Looks like I'm missing the following.

Parking Brake Lever... and possibly the Parking Brake Link, unless the illustration is showing a top view of that peice, because I have two peices that could fit in there, but they look different front he side, from the top they could look like a rod in the illustration.

Thanks again man.

Re: Help needed please with rear brakes.

the link is not a rod, it is a mostly flat ~2" wide bar with notches cut in each end. one end is also cut a little bit on the outside for an elliptical spring, which is shown in that picture. the parking brake lever is kinda half-moon shaped with a pivot hole at the top and another hole at the bottom for the e-brake cable to hook into. these are not normal maintenance items so I doubt any parts houses have them, but it sounds like you're just rebuilding existing brakes so you should have them. if you're reconstructing the brakes from a bare backing plate, the junkyard is probably the place to find those pieces if you dont have them... should be more or less free of charge [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Re: Help needed please with rear brakes.

Thanks for your help guys, yeah I'm rebuilding them, but my previous shoes had that parking brake lever riveted to it, so I assumed it would come with the shoes... WRONG!

Well shiiiite!

No junkyards around here have anything free... anybody who has done a disc brake swap wanna sell those things?

Thanks again.
